American Airlines has increased the frequency of its new ultra-long-haul route from New York JFK to Delhi. This route is slated to begin started on October 31 later this year.
After a nine-year break on this route, when it announced the reopening of this route back in April, it was expected to operate regularly commencing November 17 until January 1 and three weekly flights for the rest of the year.
However, American has recently raised the frequency to a daily service year-round, beginning at the end of October. This route would be served by a Boeing 777-200ER equipped with 273 seats, comprising 37 seats in business class, 24 in premium economy, and 212 in economy class.
American flight AA292 would depart from New York JFK at 20:10, landing in Delhi the following evening at 19:30. The return flight AA293 will leave Delhi at 23:55 and arrive back in New York at 06:30. (All timings are local time)
American Airlines performed its final scheduled trip to New Delhi from Chicago on February 28, 2012, aboard a Boeing 777-200.
Currently, three routes serve New Delhi and New York, United’s daily flights from Newark, Air India’s daily flights to JFK, and Air India’s six flights in a week to Newark.
